Michael Vick, known for his extraordinary talent as a quarterback, went from the star player for The Atlanta Falcons to owning the title of animal abuser. Law officials raided his Virginia home where dead and neglected pit pulls, in addition to dog fighting equipment were found. Over a period of six years, Vick and his accomplices fought pit bulls for a profit and executed several dogs that were deemed unfit to perform in those fights by means of drowning or hanging. Four months after the raid, Vick pled guilty to animal cruelty charges in August 2007 for his part in organizing the dogfighting ring, Bad Newz Kennels. After being sentenced, Vick delivered an apology that spoke of how disappointed he was in his actions and how they have affected those around him.

It was a stressful time for the dogs as none of them wanted to die. The girl dogs were getting raped half the time and their puppies were sentenced to a life of constant fighting and death. Other dogs were tortured to build endurance and strength for the fights they were forced to participate in.

It is agued that Father Flynn is indeed guilty. He is so worried about how he looks to others he might do or say anything to cover something up. “I feel as if my reputation has been damaged through no fault of my own” (Shanley 39).
